White Darkness ‘Tokage’ CD/LP/DD 2011

28th October 2011 at 1:24 pm

White Darkness

Dread. Unease. The Ain Soph Aur trickling down into creation. The white hot oblivion of forcible unconsciousness. The inescapable fear of nightmare. All of these things come to mind whilst contemplating the music and chiaroscuro name of White Darkness. Mining similar underworlds as Khanate…

31st October 2014 at 9:48 am

White Dynomite - S/T

A story. When I was eighteen, some friends and I road tripped from snowy-ass Pennsylvania to even snowier-ass Boston, Massachusetts. We headed to the Middle East Club one night where we thought we were going to see the King of Surf Guitar, Dick Dale,…

White Hills ‘Frying On This Rock’ CD/LP 2012

1st February 2012 at 10:42 am

White Hills

Some album titles are unimaginative, or in a lot of cases, just plain shit. ‘St. Anger’, ‘Ten’, ‘Hillbilly Deluxe 2’, ‘Bleach’ – yes, we’re thinking of you. Others may be well worded, but bear no relevance to the musical content they are designed to…

White Hills ‘Glitter Glamour Atrocity’ CD/LP/DD Reissue 2014

10th October 2014 at 12:27 pm

White Hills

Gotta admit, when the press release about White Hills came out with a bunch of talking about the evils of Bush Jr. it was hard not to roll my eyes a little. Not that he was a good president (he was shit), just that…

White Hills ‘Live at Roadburn 2011’ CD/DD 2011

7th January 2012 at 9:06 am

White Hills

Watching KISS dominate the Download Festival in 2009 in all their tickertape-drenched glory is the greatest show I’ve ever seen. After watching their mammoth 2-hour set on the Saturday night, I returned to the arena for the Sunday action unfazed by the to-be-expected throngs…

5th August 2013 at 9:23 am

White Hills

Hungrily prolific New York Psychedelickers White Hills’ seventh album brings together the obvious talents of three lovers of space exploration (both outer and inner worlds) via the medium of rock music and electronica and simultaneously represents a continued success for this undoubtedly special band…

White Hills ‘Walks For Motorists’ CD/LP/DD 2015

5th July 2015 at 12:48 pm

White Hills

Let’s talk about love and let’s talk about music. I love White Hills because I suspect they love a lot of the classic music that I love too. I reckon they love Chrome and Kraftwerk and The Stooges and Hawkwind and Can and lots…

Whores ‘Clean’ 12″/DD 2013

29th November 2013 at 9:25 am

Whores

Atlanta noiseniks Whores’ new record ‘Clean‘ combines bubblegum pop and syncopated Balearic trance into a smooth, daytime listening extravaganza, a complete departure from their usual ‘Gospel of Albini’ ferocity. That’s all lies, of course. Their last record, Ruiner, was a sludgy combo platter of…

Widows ‘Death Valley Duchess’ CD 2012

3rd August 2012 at 9:02 am

Widows

When Def Leppard came up with the name Bludgeon Riffola for their record label maybe, just maybe, Joe Elliot and chums looked into the future, heard Nottingham’s Widows, thought “Yes! That’s for us, we’ll have some of THAT!” and coined the phrase based upon…
